Alright, I read this somewhere earlier but I cant remember. Which actress lost out roles that were played by Renee Zellweger in Chicago and Bridget Jones?

It's bugging me that I cant remember!

LOL!

No, it's not Cameron. And it's not Kate Winslet. All I know is that she was turned down for Chicago because she was not famous enough and she had other commitments thereofre had to pull out of B. Jones. She's relatively famous now.

OMG WhoTF is it!

The closest answer I found was Charlize Theron or Catherine Zeta-Jones. Both were asked to play as Roxie, but Renne ended up as her, while Catherine become Velma Kelly.

Both don't have connections with Bridget Jones diary though....

All I know is that Gwyneth Paltrow was the first choice for Roxie Hart in Chicago and she turned it down. But I don't think she was linked to Bridget Jones at all. Plus she's really famous.

I think Kristen Chenoweth might have been in the running to play Roxie in Chicago but I've never heard anything about her and Bridget Jones.

Toni Collette!

Yeah its Toni Collete. She was offered both roles, but turned the first down because she was in a broadway musical and the second because she didn't feel roxie fit her.

Nevertheless fantastic Australian actress :worship:

Toni Collette!

You just hit the jackpot!!! :lol:

From Wikipedia:-
Collette had to turn down the title role in Bridget Jones's Diary (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridget_Jones%27s_Diary_%28film%29) because she was committed to perform on Broadway at the time, the role eventually went to Renee Zellweger. She then auditioned for the role of ambitious murderess Roxie Hart in the hit film Chicago (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_%28film%29); She almost got the part but, because she wasn't a well known enough actress, she lost the role to Renee Zellweger (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renee_Zellweger).

Actually Toni supposedly didn't get the role of Roxie Hart because she, "wasn't a well known actress" not because she didn't feel the role fit her.
